Scottish Football: Celtic to honour McNeil in style, says Mr Fixit


DAILY RECORD star Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) shares his best bets from Saturday's action.

Celtic v Kilmarnock | Saturday 20th April 2019, 12:30

There will be a poignant atmosphere at Celtic Park on Saturday as fans pay tribute to club legend Billy McNeill. The world of football has been mourning the death of the Lisbon Lions skipper but tears can turn to cheers if the Hoops put on a show fit for Cesar.
Kilmarnock are the visitors with four points needed to guarantee the title and it looks written in the stars Celtic will clinch the treble Treble by lifting the Scottish Cup on May 25 against Hearts – 52 years to the day McNeill raised the European Cup.

First things first though and Killie need to be taken care of with the omens good. Celtic are unbeaten in 12 against the Rugby Park men, winning 10 of them. The other two were 0-0s – and scoreless draws have been the bane of Neil Lennon's life since he replaced Brendan Rodgers. Past wins include a 5-1, 5-0, and 6-1 and this time the shackles could be off and fans treated to some entertainment.

Celtic are of course short at 1/4 but I'm taking a chance on them -1 at 4/5 with Ladbrokes against Steve Clarke's side who crashed to Aberdeen last week with eight men.

Motherwell v Dundee | Saturday 20th April 2019, 15:00

Premiership bottom club Dundee look doomed and will be down if they don't win at Fir Park and St Mirren avoid defeat at home to St Johnstone. Dundee have lost eight in a row and were abysmal in last week's defeat to St Johnstone which could have ended up a hammering.

Motherwell's five-game home winning streak was ended by Rangers but they look well equipped to bounce back. Go for a home win at 17/20 with Black Type.

Partick Thistle v Ayr | Saturday 20th April 2019, 15:00

IIn the Championship it's still interesting at the bottom but it's all change after Partick Thistle's two wins in four days against Ayr and Alloa lifted them up to sixth. Thistle face Ayr again and Ian McCall has admitted his side are already focused on the promotion play-offs. The Jags are unbeaten in five while Ayr have lost four of five. Back the home at 11/10 at bet365.

Best Bets

Celtic v Kilmarnock – Celtic -1 (4/5 Ladbrokes)

Motherwell v Dundee – Motherwell to win (17/20 Black Type)

Partick Thistle v Ayr – Partick Thistle to win (11/10 Bet365)
